Tomorrow is going to be epic! For the first time ever, the four F girls will be together! Cher Calvin, Angel Aquino, Amanda Griffin and me. We’ve never been together. In 2003, Cher left for the US at the same time I had just given birth to my first daughter. We had a 2-month period of having guest-F girls until we found the perfect one in Amanda. So the four of us have never actually been together in a show and in real life. Tomorrow is going to be the first!
This is something that just happened organically. Last January, Cher told me she was coming to town. Her exact words, “Reunion?” So then I asked Amanda if she could fly in this time (she lives overseas with her husband and adorable son). We didn’t have the resources to produce our own reunion show. But we basically just wanted to celebrate life and be together. So I figured, why not get a photographer and have our photos done. I secured a booking with photographer and makeup artist two months ago. A few days ago, they backed out on me – apparently they were double booked or had a better offer.
I wasn’t going to let everything fall apart. Within minutes, I made some calls. And now our reunion is going to be a beautiful private celebration. We start the day with a live appearance at Mornings @ANC at 9:30am. Please tune in to the show as it will be the only time we’re making an appearance. I have to thank these luxury brands for supporting the F reunion – Sofitel Philippine Plaza, Jewelmer, MAC makeup. And a big thanks to stylist Millet Arzaga and photographer Jake Versoza.
Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day of friendship, fashion, food, fun and all things F!
This was a classic – MRT in the early 2000′s
This was the reunion campaign Angel, Cher and I did for a beauty brand.
I remember doing this at Enchanted Kingdom and laughing our heads off after every pose. Angel’s daughter Iana was with us. Now she’s in college.
This was one of the most unforgettable experiences. We did a real “survivor” episode before any local show did such immersion programs. We had to go fishing, or else, no lunch.
We shot this in Punta Fuego – Angel, me and Amanda.
One of our trips to Baguio.
My favourite F trip — that one week we spent in Mactan Shangri-la. It was so relaxing. These were my carefree “me” days. Now, I can’t go anywhere for that long.
The same Cebu trip. Can I just say that I want my tan back? These were my beach bum days. I used to go scuba-diving every weekend!
This was at a Studio 23 event in Baywalk.

I’m sure the girls will get a good laugh out of this photo. We did an all-India episode minus the traveling part. So we shot at a local Indian temple. But our researchers lost some details. The designer (I think it was Michele Sison) created ethnic-inspired outfits. The temple leaders were aghast at the lack of covering – bare arms, bare back, exposed shoulders. So the temple ladies came to us and covered us up with their shawls. Lesson learned.
Our first major cover.
Please watch Mornings @ANC tomorrow March 28, 2012 at 9:30am – all F girls together again.
